Genre: M/M Christmas Romance
Summary: A dragon is loose in Chicago. Howl would be more concerned if the case didn’t keep interrupting his lunch reservations. Partnered up with the distractingly handsome Detective Reyes, Howl is going to have to pull himself out of his melancholy if he wants to solve the case and get back to his Christmas plans, getting drunk while watching It’s a Wonderful Life, alone. Well, not if Detective Reyes has anything to say about it.
Review: Howl has become a lonely and grumpy wizard since his partner was killed last year. He wants nothing more than to get drunk and watch sappy movies right through Christmas. A dragon is loose in Chicago, and Howl is partnered up with Detective Reyes but Reyes wants to catch more than a dragon. This was a fun short story with a little Christmas thrown in. I liked the cantankerous Howl and felt bad for his loneliness. The story was cute with a smooth plot line which I’d expect from Ms Dalton. The HEA ending wasn’t much of a surprise but getting there is worth the time.
